We have been developing the potential of women leaders, serving the DeKalb County community, and promoting voluntarism for over 80 years!  Our membership is made up of wonderful women from all stages of life.  We would love for you to join us! 

The Junior League of DeKalb County has decided that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel or postpone many of our signature events, special programming and membership development activities. Both public and member only events have been impacted by this decision. 

Although we have many events that were scheduled to happen during the impacted timeframe, we want to specifically highlight that the following events have also been postponed: 

  • 2nd Annual Women Mean Business Conference
  • 3rd Annual Bourbon & BBQ Event

We are monitoring the updates about the local coronavirus directives on large gatherings and will be sure to update everyone once we are able to reschedule these events. Thank you for your understanding.

Annual Fund

The JLD Annual Fund directly supports our mission by funding our community projects, advocacy activities, community outreach efforts, and membership training.  Your donation will make an immediate and tangible impact on our success in serving the DeKalb County community and changing lives.

JLD's Community Impact


In 2018, JLD pioneered the DeKalb Saturday Scholar Initiative to provide extra support with reading and language skills to 3rd-5th graders at Oak View Elementary.


JLD members assist multiple DeKalb County organizations such as the International Women's House, DeKalb Library Foundation, the Women's Resource Center, Clarkston Community Center, and more.


JLD mentors middle school girls at the Jones Club in Decatur.


JLD collaborates with the other 12 Georgia Junior Leagues to advocate for women and children in Georgia.

Are you interested in working with elementary school students to improve their early reading and language skills?  Or mentoring middle school girls?  What about helping with voter education and registration?  Or advocating for women and children?  If so, we have volunteer opportunities for you!
